Mark your calendars, National Infertility Awareness Week (NIAW 2022) is the week of April 24th-30th. At Donor Nexus, we are passionate about NIAW because it gives us an opportunity to recognize, honor, and fight for people who are fighting to have a family. We have shared some resources below to help you prepare for NIAW!
Founded in 1989 by RESOLVE: The National Infertility Awareness Association, NIAW is the largest public awareness campaign that addresses infertility.
The goal of the NIAW campaign is to change the conversation around infertility. By highlighting stories and issues that the community faces, NIAW does more than create awareness. NIAW is an opportunity for anyone and everyone to rally together to show support for the millions of couples and individuals that struggle with infertility.
RESOLVE has challenged businesses to talk about how they support patients and infertility awareness. Did you know that Donor Nexus is a proud partner of RESOLVE? We also partner with several other incredible organizations, including: SEEDS (Society for Ethics in Egg Donation and Surrogacy) and Family Equality.
We aim to show our support of the infertility community through everything we do at Donor Nexus! First and foremost, we work relentlessly towards our mission of making donor eggs and donor embryos accessible to help couples and individuals build their families. We understand that each journey is unique and so we offer flexible programs that can be tailored to fit the specific needs and desires of each couple or individual.
Additionally, we recently launched the first ever donor database app to make finding an egg donor, frozen donor eggs, or donor embryos easier than ever before. We continue to look for opportunities to serve this community and shed light on the beautiful, unique paths to parenthood that third party reproduction offers. You can find many resources and personal stories in our blog.
The NIAW 2022 campaign theme is #WeCanAll. What does it mean? Instead of responding to individuals with infertility with “Why don’t you just…” sentiments, RESOLVE is encouraging everyone to respond to infertility with a “We can all” approach. What can we all do to remove the stigmas surrounding infertility?
#WeCanAll normalize the conversation surrounding third party reproduction and shed light on the beautiful opportunity donor conception provides for many couples and individuals.
